Not sure which is worse for Antoine Walker. That he’s being sued in a $2.3 million foreclosure lawsuit over the Tinley Park mansion he bought his mom or that he lists himself as unemployed in the subsequent bankruptcy filing.
The latest trouble in a string of bad news for the former NBA All Star shows Walker with assets of $4.28 million against liabilities of $12.74 million, according to a report in Crain’s Chicago Business. He was last in the news for writing a series of bad checks on casino debt, though charges were deferred when a payment plan was agreed upon.
Walker made $110 million in his 13-year NBA career.
In the bankruptcy filing, Walker claims he has no monthly income and no job. Aside from debt on real estate, the petition includes more than $1.25 million in gambling debt to casinos in Las Vegas and Northwest Indiana. And there’s his 2006 NBA championship ring, listed at $6,000 according to the filing.
Northern Trust filed the foreclosure suit in Chicago on May 13.
